Overcoming Daily Obstacles!

Most of us in this world are working adults, we work the dreadful Monday through Friday schedule 8AM to 5PM. Depending on your career path you may have more flexibility or be a homemaker. In any case we all work, taking the steps to reach our goals in life and to fulfill our life’s purpose.

During the work week it is so easy to experience many obstacles. These obstacles may be work related, personal or emotional. Either way by the end of the week you can be drained from it all or you can overcome those obstacles like a champ! Here is what I do to effectively get through the work week, enjoy the weekend and get back to business the next week.

Firstly I’ve been working a new job for almost 4 months now. I used to work from home but now I go into the office. My daily obstacles include, office banter, traffic, waking up before the butt crack of dawn and dealing with people, their feelings, thoughts and attitudes all week long! And then I say “God are you sure this is what I asked for?”

The way I come out on top every week is I continue to fill my spirit with God’s word. Listening to a sermon, reading scripture or notes that I’d previously made, it’s all God’s word. Then when I get off of work I always do at least one enjoyable activity, whether it is watching my favorite show, listening to music or best of all getting on my skates! As long as I do something enjoyable that evening it helps my week go smoother.

The second thing I do is to always be mindful of foolishness and negative people. If you can, avoid both of these. Foolishness and negative people only bring you down, use your energy ineffectively and cause you to get distracted. You don’t need that, I know I don’t!

Lastly, don’t panic! Don’t panic when things don’t go as planned or you left the shoes you wanted to wear to work at home and didn’t realize it until you were halfway to work, had no spare time to stop for a new pair and if you did everything is closed because it’s 6AM when you arrive at your place of work like I did this morning! Haha!

Lift up your head, trust God because He has a solution for every problem and walk into work confidently, get through your work week gracefully, use your energy effectively and wear those Neon Pink Nike Slides like you coordinated it with your outfit on purpose! 😁

When we make sure we fill our spirits with God’s word, do enjoyable activities, don’t panic and trust God we will continue to overcome daily obstacles, small aggravations and unexpected changes. At the end of week we will be winners, conquerors and exactly the people God created us to be!

When You Do Better, You Become Better And Experience Better!

Happy Wacky Wednesday! ❤
